    Wassmuth Education Center

    The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights will be a comprehensive education facility located within the licensing agreement of the Memorial.  The 3,500 sf first floor will accommodate daily operations and staffing including an 800 sf Docent Center for beginning and ending tours of the Memorial, two welcoming stations with VR tours of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, visitor center, and public restrooms.

    A one-of-a-kind human rights educational center within a one-of-a-kind human rights memorial.

    For over two decades, the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights has proudly served Idaho educators and students. The scope of our programming, resources, and services has grown dramatically. Now it is time to look to the future. And the future is bright. Exploring new ways to better serve Idaho’s classrooms and communities — and meet the demand — our resources, technology and facilities must grow too. We look forward to bringing all aspects of daily operation and programming into one comprehensive education center.

    For the first time in the Center’s existence, all aspects of daily operations and programming will be housed in one location. Upon completion of the $3 million campaign, the project will break ground in 2021.

    Welcome progress has been made since the late Bill Wassmuth first stood up to bigotry and hatred in northern Idaho.
    But the need for human rights education grows with every new generation of Idaho children.
    Today’s headlines only remind us there’s much more to be done.

    Human Rights Certification

    For the individual, certification is formal recognition of a specific skill set that focuses on human rights and human dignity.  For a business or organization, having employees or members who have earned certification is evidence that value statements are backed by knowledgeable, thoughtful, and meaningful commitments.
